“Rumbling Chapel” is the third album from psychedelic Doomcore band Warped Cross, which was founded in 2008, in Saxony.
Throughout 50 minutes, these 11 new tracks roll themselves full of emotional gloom into the ears and brain of the listener. But even if they are always playing with the foot on the brake pedal, these Saxons are, of course, not a pure doom band, but celebrate a versatile mix of impacting riffs, driving drums and partly pathetically performed vocals in a sound garment that should also appeal to fans of bands like Down or Crowbar.
“Rumbling Chapel” was recorded and produced at the Larox Studio in Chemnitz. The album was mastered by Roland Wiegner at the Tonmeisterei Oldenburg (a.o.Hammerhead, Long Distance Calling or Feine Sahne Fischfilet). The artwork, which perfectly fits the dark style of the album was designed by the Leipzig tattoo artist “The Sepp”. With “Rumbling Chapel” the band underlines that they can be reckoned in 2020 and offers a perfect soundtrack for the rather cold and dark days of the year.
